Meet our team.
Compassionate and understanding team of healthcare professionals.
Kevin himself was plagued with questions: How could they grow up in the same household, with the same ethics and integrity, the same parents, and end up on such different paths? Why did his mother enable his brother time and time again, failure after failure? Could he have done something differently to save his brother? Was this just David’s life or could the family hold the keys to his future? With so many questions and no answers, David turned to Psychology.
While Kevin finished college with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, David was failing again, after more than twenty attempts at different drug treatment programs. As David began another treatment program, the family made a shift in their habits. They finally listened to professional advice and decided that they needed to change their enabling behaviors and set healthy boundaries for themselves. David no longer had his safety net. This decision eventually allowed Kevin and David to rebuild their trust in each other and start their journey towards creating their nationwide intervention company, Intervention Services Inc.
After years of flying around the country trying to help families, they decided it was time to try and help their community and open an outpatient treatment center. Combining their philosophies and experiences into programs based on each individual’s needs became the heart of Heartland.
I have spent my life being of service to the community around me, from helping seniors, the disabled, and homeless get the assistance they need in Hawaii; to helping at-risk-youth in San Francisco develop work skills while giving them the counseling and social services they needed to prepare them for a positive future.
People are worth fighting for.
I utilize a holistic, patient-centered approach integrating most recent evidence-based interventions and treatment options, focusing on providing patients the education and resources needed to empower them to actively participate in developing and executing their individualized plan of care. I provide an open and non-judgemental space for anyone in need of mental services while taking a great interest and respect for the differences in every person which make them unique.
I am a nationally certified family nurse practitioner and received my Master of Science in Nursing in 2016. I specialize in the treatment of mental health disorders across the lifespan with several years of acute inpatient psychiatric experience, as well as outpatient psychiatric, and recovery services experience. I have experience in assessment, diagnosis and management of chronic and acute mental illness, including mood disorders, psychotic disorders, anxiety disorders, substance abuse disorders, and behavioral and mood disturbances related to neurocognitive and autism spectrum disorders.
I graduated with a degree in Social Work and have focused on my recovery path all amidst a pandemic. I understand how hard life can seem. Today, I am grateful for all of my experiences because they have helped shape me into the person I am.
I am super eager to help others find their path to recovery, by sharing my experience, strength, and hope. I hope to show people that they do not have to live in the dark anymore, but instead they can live in the light. That is my biggest joy in life today and what I am most passionate about!
I received my bachelor's in social work from The Ohio State University and graduated with my master's from Indiana University with a concentration in metal health and addictions. At Heartland I developed and lead the self-development path for our recovery PHP, along with providing individual counseling for those who struggle with substance misuse, recovery, and codependency. I also have experience working with clients who are dealing with anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, emotional abuse, relationship problems, and anger management in adolescents and adults.
Although knowledge, skills, therapeutic interventions, and treatment modalities are a necessity for therapy, in my opinion, the key component of the therapy is the rapport and trust that is built into the therapeutic relationship.
My name is Kholby Klein and I am working towards my Masters in Mental Health Counseling. Welcome!"

Starting therapy and entering into a therapeutic relationship can be terrifying and I recognize the courage and vulnerability it takes to make this step. I want to meet you where you are, not where you or anyone else thinks you “should” be. I make every effort to create a safe and comfortable space that makes you feel genuinely seen, heard, and understood. Your story, your pain, and your collection of struggles are unique to you, which is why I believe each individual requires an approach specific to their specific needs and goals. Instead of telling you what to do, I will help you find your own authentic voice.
Together we will discover ways for you to address your concerns, working to help you live a more satisfying, meaningful life – whatever that may look like for you. My role as a therapist is to walk alongside my clients as they are empowered to make choices that align with their values, goals, and beliefs.

After the loss of her brother, Diana started moving towards her goal of becoming a substance abuse counselor. Starting at an Intervention company in 2015, her passion for helping people grew, and she is currently working towards her CADAC 2.
Getting to see clients when they first walk in the door to the time of their completion, and how much of a positive impact Heartland had on them, is the most rewarding part of my job.
